We stayed here as part of a package safari holiday with virgin holidays. The staff were very friendly and efficient. I believe this is the oldest of the sopa lodges and although not the most stunning location (that was the lake navasha one) this was the best run. Food was varied and very good. They do turn the electric off...

Great location in the hillside with beautiful view. Nice staff, but a lot of them (aspecially the women) talk so quietly that you can barely hear them... Nice cabins, but they could use a little upgrading and the walls between the rooms are very thin. On our first night we had trouble sleeping because the neighbour was snoring so loudly......

Hotel was nice with friendly staff. Rooms were just OK. Had lots of mosquitos, even with the night time netting. Food was just OK too. The biggest downfall of this hotel is that wifi was VERY spotty. The other thing is that they use power from generators, so they shut down several times a day with no power, just day...

We stayed for two nights at Sopa Lodge as part of a service group after-work safari. The hotel and rooms and lodge are beautiful, as are the grounds. I did not use the pool, as it was a bit chilly when we were there, but it is beautiful, as well. The food was excellent, with a large variety. The one...

This was our first Lodge in Kenya. On arrival we were greeted with a cooling drink and refreshing face cloth. This level of service and attention to guests was maintained throughout our 2 night stay. The rooms were spacious and bottled water was provided at no extra cost. Meals were generally buffet style and there was a good selection. The...

Location is good. Surrounded by forest and wild life not far off. Big fire place and bar laundering that serves all sort of drinks. Even a person like me had non alcoholic mock tail. Restaurant people are very very friendly and serve you with a smile. Rooms are okay. Walk in net to protect from insect was good. Furniture was...

Mara sopa Lodge is located outside of the park it is a decent Lodge the grounds are nice and the rooms spacious. The walls between rooms are very thin you can hear everything. The food was buffet style and just ok and the service was average. My only reason for giving it 2 stars instead of three is their ridiculous...

Meet and greet was very friendly, surprised to see it has 100 rooms. The rooms are well set out and plenty of space, for the sad people that need to look at Wi-Fi all the time, they have to use the main reception area, we prefer to take to people. The power to the rooms is not on all the...

We visited mid last December. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming. The meals were delicious, staff(Charity) went above and beyond to ensure my picky young son had an alternative meal choice. The swimming pool water temperature was a bit cold, I would suggest investing in a pool cover. This would reduce swimming pool heating cost, in addition it would...
